Correction...His wife adopted the daughter during a trip abroad and by her words "suprised him" with the child when she returned home. I wonder why
she didn't consult with him first concerning a decision of that magnitude?
But McCain still took the girl in and they adopted her, didn't they? And they spent a fortune to repair the girl's cleft palate.
Yes sos... I am not at all comfortable saying he doesn't love and support his daughter. She IS NOT black as Jetx said by the way, she is Indian.
Why didn't Cindy McCain talk it over with her husband before adopting the child and returning to the states and "suprising" him?
Why did he waffle on the Confederate flag issue? By his own words he admits doing what he knew was wrong because he was "ambitious" and wanted
support from NC politicians...HIS WORDS.
Voting against MLK day? His words ...he wasn't "up on the issue". He was 47 years old and a senator in DC, but somehow he missed the civil rights
movement and MLKs assasination? No sale. If he was genuinely ignorant then he could have chosen NOT TO VOTE like he has many times before.
I thin he voted against it becasue he wanted to be liked by the old school white republicans and because he needed their friendship for his ambituous
Perfectly willing to be a racist for ambition or to be liked by powerful men.
Add his addiction to gambling and what playing the CRAPS table for 14 hour stints says about his need to be the center of attention and his risk
taking nature.... Google around on the psychology of craps players vs. poker players.
Add in the image of a man loudly telling racist/homophobe jokes in a DC bar.
His quick temper with reporters when challenged (insecurity)
My honest opinion....John McCAin isn't a racist in the KKK hard core love to hate crew, but rather he is willing to play the part if it will make him
liked among the old white power broker politicians in DC. A racist not in heart, but because he just wants to be liked by racists...which kind of
scares me more.
Charles Keating called John McCain "a wimp" and walked into his senate office and told John McCain to get involved in the Lincoln savings and loan
scandal what later became the "keating five"...McCAin was known as "keatings little finger" McCain did as he was told...he has always wanted to be
liked by powerful men. Possibly a psychological flaw left over from his relationship with his dad.
This is why McCain is more dangerous than the risk taken on Barak Obama. McCain will do things contrary to his conscience simply for the approval of
powerful men or for ambition. This is a recipe for a second Bush term or worse where the POTUS is manipulated by the powerful few.
McCain will do as he is told.
McCain has out and out admitted that he is willing to abandon his principles for the sake of ambition. And he desperately needs attention and to be
liked. That kind of insecurity is a dangerous mix.
